The Baltimore Sun reported Thursday that the state will see a 3.4 percent increase in the number of people traveling. It nearly matches the nationwide jump of those leaving home for the holiday.
AAA Mid-Atlantic said this Thanksgiving weekend is expected to be the busiest in more than a decade. The organization said a strengthening economy and consumer confidence have prompted Americans to be willing to spend more on travel.
AAA said that most Maryland travelers are expected to drive to their destinations.
